Solar-powered airplane heads to New York

Sat 11 Jun 2016, 11:40:05
A solar-powered airplane has left Pennsylvania for New York City on the latest leg of its globe-circling voyage.
The Swiss-made Solar Impulse 2 took off from Lehigh Valley International Airport late Friday. It will soar over the Statue of Liberty and fly into New York City, landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday.
The plane originally was scheduled to head to the Big Apple on Monday night but showers and thunderstorms moving through the area caused it to be grounded. The plane had been in Allentown since May 25.
The voyage began March 2015 from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Stops were made in Oman, Myanmar, China and Japan.
